Chilli's for the Malt Loaf/Cheese biscuit "sandwich" I'd imagine.

I'm aghast.

A couple of weeks ago I bought...

Moondance (Van Morrison)
Agharta (Miles Davis)

Unfortunately Argentinian stores don't have much in the way of diversity so I find myself buying less and less music over time. Nevertheless, if I find something cool I'll try to get it.

In terms of films, Argentinian stores are even *worse*. My only chance to acquire new stuff is to take advantage of anyone I know that is going to the US for a week or two, and that happens twice a year or so. My latest purchase, which was back around October/November...

Don't Look Now (Nicolas Roeg)
The Emmigrants / The New Land (Jan Troell)
A Brighter Summer Day (Edward Yang)
Paris Belongs to Us (Jacques Rivette)
The American Friend (Wim Wenders)

Elbow - Little Fictions
Ty Segall latest
Foxygen - Hang
& an ill-advised Krautrock & Progressive box set of which I've yet to hear any Krautrock on.

With Birthday Amazon money I ordered a copy of the book that came out after the Serious Moonlight tour, my original copy of which had been hurled into a bin bag while I was partying in Brighton along with all my vinyl. As if I did. It already have enough Bowie gubbins!

Nice! Cosmic Jokers are one of those bands that are great to listen to on headphones at about 3 in the morning.

"People's Instinctive Travels...." is probably my favorite of TCQ, but "Masked Marauders" is really just about as good. I'm really wanting to hear the new one they released back a few month ago; I've heard it's pretty good.
